We parents tend to get sucked into the seasons. There is a lot to organize and accomplish throughout the fun vacation. Traditions exist this time of year, from decorating the house or trimming the tree to preparing all the annual crafts and dishes. But even Santa deserves a winter vacation from the rush of stuffing stockings, baking cookies, and wrapping presents. There are lots of ways to plan some quality time over the remaining portion of winter vacation when the holiday sparkle fades. Even kids need to make use of this time before they get back to studying and waking up early every day. That said, we’ll show 11 awesome ways to make the best out of the winter break, so keep reading.
Explore the city
On weekends, you may not have time to go out with kids and show them around the city. The two-day weekend is hardly enough for visiting family and the sports club. So why don’t you take this chance to go with your kids to new different places and show them around? They haven’t probably seen the citadel, Mohamed Ali’s Mosque, Abdeen Palace, and other historical places. You may also want to visit different streets (not necessarily historical) like Al-Moez Street, Al-Azhar Mosque, Korba, and the like.
Trace the dots
Look up and download some free printable coloring and tracing pages for your little ones. Buy some crayons or colored pencils for your kids so that they can draw and color and not be bored. They can trace the dots all day or color their favorite superhero pictures. This activity is great for younger kids or those who actually love to draw and color.
Although it’s winter, ice skating is still one of the most thrilling activities you can do during the winter break. Whether you choose Ski Egypt in Mall of Egypt or Snow City in City Stars, your kids will enjoy this experience. There are different packages depending on what your family would like to do, so choose what suits you best. There are also other skiing places in Giza and Cairo that you may want to check out as well.
